Valerie Lang left us last night. I am thinking of her who has gone out in the light of her talent, her parents, Jack and Monique, to whom I express all my friendship and sadness.
Her disappearance was a shock for everyone in the theatre, to whom she had brought her immense talent as an actress and to whom she still had so much to give.
His presence on stage was a flamboyance. Valérie Lang carried within her a light and an evidence: that of having found very early her comedian truth. She knew that writers, companions, the theatre as a whole, produced the greatest revolutions and the best alliances.
Valérie Lang began her training as an actress at the Conservatoire National Supérieur d'Art Dramatique (CNSAD) in the class of Jean-Pierre Vincent. From 1992 to 1998 she joined the Stanislas Nordey Troupe at the Théâtre des Amandiers in Nanterre. Then she co-directed with Stanislas Nordey the Théâtre Gérard Philipe, in Saint-Denis. She continued her career as an actress.
Valérie Lang drew from the sources of theatre, a theatre of flesh and commitment in an inseparable bond with the audience.
The theatre was, she said, an act of resistance. She is a resistant woman – and a free woman – who is leaving, whose concern was to transmit this independence in her art, in her life.
We miss her already.
